More About Spies for Hire by Tim Shorrock
 
 
 
Overview
Now in paperback, and with a new, updated Afterword, this acclaimed investigative report is the first to expose the massive outsourcing of top-secret intelligence activities in the wake of 9/11.

- A major story the government doesn't want us to know about: Almost everything about the outsourcing of spying activities is classified. Shorrock lifts the veil off this disturb- ing story for the first time.

- Vital tasks outsourced: Running spy networks overseas, interrogating enemy prisoners, eavesdropping on phone calls, tracking al Qaeda operatives, analyzing intelligence-- these vital tasks, traditionally performed by government, are now being outsourced to companies answerable to investors rather than to Congress.

- Authoritative: Shorrock has spent four years researching this new phenomenon, drawing on interviews, government documents, and industry contacts. He takes readers inside the intelligence contracting industry, which is worth more than $50 billion a year.
